AOL Ventures

Location: New York City
Square feet: 11,500
Designer: Keegan Vance Forte

Housed in the fourth floor of an old Brooks Brothers headquarters on Broadway, AOL Ventures's new home is in a New York neighborhood best known as "NoHo," but which is rapidly becoming the southern sector of Silicon Alley. The decor of vintage billiards tables, worn Oriental rugs, and modern art jibes well with the arched windows and doorways of exposed brick. Cave-like meeting rooms are decorated with little treasures, such as vintage medicine books and magnifying glasses.
